18 November 2014 - Lessons learned from the TRI. What came of it all?

 

Learn about the exiting research results created by the six sub-programmes. New and improved Nordic technologies, climate models, networks and roadmaps were created during this initiative. Connect with Nordic project partners from academia and industry.

 

19 November 2014 - Is society ready for a green future

 
Bio-economy provides new working methods to the global challenges that decreasing natural resources and climate change bring about. This day will take us to the green future and provide views on how society needs to change e.g. infrastructures, and how the mindset of the consumer needs to adapt to the new order of bio-economy.
